God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away, Revelation 21:4.
For a Christian, Almost Home refers to the promise of eternal life, 1 John 5:13. Heaven is the reward at the end of a rainbow, a place where there will be no more tears. Yet, for now, living on earth, it’s time to figure out where you belong, Romans 12:1-2. Once you have a good idea of God’s will for your life, this is your calling until God calls you home to heaven. Enjoy this spiritual ride while it lasts.
